Bob Dylan's Nobel Prize snub continues.

After taking almost a week to acknowledge being honored with the Nobel Prize in literature -- via small update on his website, the songwriting legend has reportedly removed the mention from his page.

The 75-year-old musician's webpage no longer features the words "winner of the Nobel prize in literature," which appeared on the site for a brief time, according to U.K.'s the Guardian.

Of course, an award is just an award when all is said and done. Still, it does seem curious the lengths Dylan has gone (er, not gone?) to snub The Swedish Academy, which has reportedly not been able to contact him after bestowing the honor on a musician for the first time ever.

"Bob Dylan writes poetry for the ear," said the academy's permanent secretary, Sara Danius, while honoring Dylan. "But it's perfectly fine to read his works as poetry."
